Transportation and mobility must be efficient – both personal and environmentally. What may be an efficient way for a college student to get across campus may not be an efficient way for a older adult to go to the grocery store.  

In the U.S. crashes and congestion create 5.5 billion hours of travel delays and $70 billion in economic costs.  At UMTRI we’re working on solutions that get people, goods and services where they need to be and in an efficient manner.

At UMTRI we’re addressing both energy efficiency and personal efficiency, and identifying solutions that reduce vehicle miles traveled, which reduces fuel consumption and vehicle emissions while also reducing an individual’s risk for being involved in a crash.
